How to build a good marketing campaign for generating your first $1000
Unlike in traditional retail where there is the constant need to look for a good location e-commerce needs a solid marketing plan. My best advice will be to sit down and develop the marketing plan from scratch. You will need to incorporate a lot of online marketing techniques in order to be successful in generating your first $1000 in e-commerce. Let’s first assume that you have a personal social media presence. The best thing to do is to market your products to your online friends. They are the most likely people to buy your products first. Some entrepreneurs have generated their first $1000 in sales from social media friends and family.
$1000 dollars is actually not a lot if you have a good marketing campaign. You can even generate it without using paid advertising such as Facebook and google. However most e-commerce entrepreneurs do not want to generate their first $1000 after a couple of months. They want to generate it is a couple of days. To do this you will need your e-commerce adverts to reach at least 1000 interested people a week. You will need to either use paid advertising or influencer marketing. Remember that selling a great product is always the best marketing technique.
